Assessment of Practical Work in Ireland: A Critique
Matthews, P. S. C.; McKenna, P. J.
International Journal of Science Education, v27 n10 p1211-1224 Aug 2005
This paper critically examines the model of practical assessment discussed by Bennett and Kennedy (2001), and considers it in the light of recent changes in the assessment of science courses in the Republic of Ireland. The model is discussed in detail and the empirical results are re-evaluated. The discussion has wider relevance for the methodology, and reporting, of practical assessment in general.
